Pink Pepper essential oil is distilled from the fruit of the pink peppercorn tree, a sacred tree to the ancient Incans, which was historically used by indigenous people in various herbal solutions. Today, this essential oil is prized for its impressive versatility in aromatic, topical, and kitchen applications.
The aroma of Pink Pepper oil is sharp and spicy with subtle fruity and woody notes. Its scent has an invigorating effect, and the oil can be diffused to help create a centered and focused atmosphere. When applied topically, Pink Pepper delivers a gentle warming sensation on the skin, perfect for enhancing a soothing massage or relaxing bath experience. Pink Pepper oil can also become an essential ingredient in your kitchen, elevating the taste of your favourite marinades and sauces with its rich, spicy flavour.
Why add Pink Pepper oil to my collection? Pink Pepper oil is high in α-Phellandrene, a monoterpene alkene that provides a soothing sensation to skin. Pink Pepper essential oil contains more α-Phellandrene than any other single doTERRA oil, making it one of the best sources of this extraordinary constituent. Pink Pepper oil also contains high amounts of Limonene, a constituent that helps to clean the skin and surfaces.
